As the Captain Cook statue defilement controversy highlighted, our debates about the past can be  exceedingly fraught but fruitless. Is there a way beyond the history wars that emerged under John Howard? And in an age of free-floating fears about the global, digital future, does history remain relevant, let alone equal to the task of grounding the nation?


In this inspiring essay, Mark McKenna considers the frontier, the Anzac legacy and deep time. He drags some fascinating new scholarship into the light, and pushes the debate about history beyond the familiar polarities.
